I'm not real sure where this will go, the bike is to nice to cut up. I gonna polish the guts Outta everything and lace tm400 akront hoops to my hubs. I may try to find a period pipe for it.

I've already fixed the rear taillight bracket and heat shield and painted them black, these parts will be replaced with chrome parts if and when I find them with reasonable prices.
I also started on my wheels

subscribed. my brother has one i'm helping him clean up as well. yours looks in really nice condition.
 i guess i may as well ask here, does yours have a front brake light switch? there's some screws and a piece of black plastic under the lever on ours, but i can't quite see how wires would connect to it.

Old style Suzuki switch, PITA to assemble and set
Just go and get a new one from 2004 Intruder or similar, they made them one piece so easier to fit. I probably have one or two of the originals somewhere
